How to access files in Android

by RobertRioja Fri Jan 24, 2020 5:39 am

I have been reading the manual as well as many posts in this forum and I am very confused. It seems that SpiderBasic cannot access local files except in an Android app. Is there a version of the manual that explains how to access local files in an Android device?

Thanks,
Robert

afaik you can't access local files directly since SB is "broweser app" and browser do not have direct access to files for security reasons
SB for Android/ios uses Cordova,
Cordova do have a lot of functionality here falsam explain how t ouse some Cordova plujgins

however it is not that simple, so the Quick answer is "no you cant" :)
